A major order has been placed by international ROV operations company Fugro with Saab Seaeye for a total of 15 ROV systems complete with TMS, launch and recovery equipment and control cabins where required.
This will add substantially to Fugro's existing worldwide fleet of electric ROV resources and further confirm Fugro as the principle operator of electric ROV systems.
Included in the contract for phased delivery through 2008 are two Seaeye Jaguar systems for operation in depths of up to 3,000m.
Agreeing the contract for the new Jaguar ROV's at Oceanology is Saab Seaeye's MD Dave Grant (left) and Fugro's Global ROV Manager Jim Mann.
This is also the first order placed for the innovative new Saab Seaeye ROV which - the company claims - is the most powerful and advanced of its type in the world.
The Jaguar electric Work Class ROV systems will complement the FCV 3000 electro-hydraulic Construction Work Class ROV systems designed, manufactured and operated by Fugro.
At a contract value of over £8 million, the order adds significantly to sales won by Saab Seaeye since the company was acquired by Saab in 2007.
In addition to the two Seaeye Jaguar systems, the 15 vehicle order includes two Panther XT ROVs, one Tiger ROV, three Falcon ROVs and seven Lynx ROV systems, one of which includes an active heave-compensated launch and recovery system.
